Yesterday at the The Players Lounge at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California, the Strikeforce: “Rousey vs. Kaufman” press conference took place. Both women headlining the event focused on a variety of topics.
MMA Fighting has uploaded highlights from the press conference to their youtube account. The video focuses entirely on the main event where Ronda Rousey defends her Strikeforce Women’s bantamweight title against former champion Sarah Kaufman.
While many have seen Rousey’s comments about trying to “kill” her opponent as crossing the line, it’s the usual pre-fight hype we’ve heard so many times in the past. It’s blatantly obvious that Ronda and Sarah have nothing but the utmost respect for one another and this fight is nothing but business.
As a bonus, footage of the staredown is included. Hilarity once again ensued as Rousey gave another poor soul the infamous “Heidi Androl death stare” as they tried to hang the belt off of her shoulder while she posed for the cameras.
